Spring transfer portal preview + Will Drew Allar & Penn St. make the leap?
Listen now
April 16 marks the beginning of the college football spring transfer window. And, according to some, it will be the most chaotic spring portal period to date. Ari, Chris, and the Portal Authority, Max Olson, prepare you for next week's barrage of player movement by identifying which teams are likely to be the most active (Alabama and Washington, among others), and the players you should keep your eyes on (like RB Damien Martinez). Later, The Athletic's Penn State scribe Audrey Snyder fills us in on everything going on in Happy Valley. Of everything discussed, the most important topic, as you might suspect, is will QB Drew Allar take the next step under new OC Andy Kotelnicki? Will a playoff berthe be enough to satisfy Nittany Lions fans? Speaking of things going on in Pennsylvania, Chris just came back from Wrestlemania. By his estimation, what can college football learn from wrestling/WWE? Rundown: - Explaining the rules of the spring transfer portal (3:00) - Which teams will be the most active in the portal?
